Subject: Lesson Learned!
I made the trip from Ohio to Atlanta for this run of shows. Had great tickets for all three nights. My buddy and I had been doing shows since the early eighties. He had actually been doing them since the seventies. The whole show we kept waiting for the boys to open it up. In our minds it sounded like a prolonged sound check. However, when we were leaving we heard some guy yell out, "This was the best show I ever saw!" So, my friend and I always said, from then on, that every Dead show is someone's favorite show! It was a cool perspective. I haven't changed my mind about this show though. It was mediocre, especially compared to the next two night. By the time a decent Truckin' rolls around the show is almost over. Anyway, the next two nights were stellar. This one was just average, in my opinion.

My B-day is the 2nd, and a mob of us from Athens went to all three shows, as always. This recording stands out - levels higher, dynamics better, but mainly it captures the *electricity* in the audience. The crowd, and the Band, got better each succeeding night! This is a three night stint to remember, and keep on the old MP3 Player. There could be no better way to celebrate my 36th! Enjoy!

Me, my brother and and a buddy showed up w/ no tics and got in at cost all three nights. The total cost added up to $180 for the whole w-end. Lucky us I guess. Great e-end of music. Oh to be care free and twenty again. Listening to these shows brings back those magical days. Boy I really miss Jerry.

Subject: so blessed for the BD shows from the band
being an April Fool and growing up in North Atlanta 1- to have my BD show at on my "turf" it was the best party with all my family then.
2- Atlanta finally was in the "major league" tour stops with a 4 night run 2 on 1 off 2 on. I was so proud of my old hometown. I never have been into Phillips arena, I went to see the Omni torn down- hell yeah i was crying on the Marta ride home. That place had alot of memories....again this was a typical ATL show w/ Touch of Grey....Again everyone on here is a blessed sou;l to keep the audio on the wheel turnin! And as always the Boys are rated 5 Star

what a night...
counterfit tix all around...ted turner's omni.
we were young(ish) and dumb...

saw a guy inside squirtin something out of his leather watersack...I asked for some of his psychadelic juice...he asked me, "are you a cop?" I said, "no, it's my birthday", and received some of his liquid enigma. I swear I saw the boyz that night turn into real cartoon bears...

I missed every note on the "hey jude"
but sure miss it all now

Happy Birthday, Frosty!

BTW, this is a very crisp audience tape.
Yeah, a five is generous...but so was the ol' man with the magic water...

Subject: $100 show
I remember it well, my big first dead show. All these folks at the omni to see the dead, not enough seats, no tickets, a long road trip for nothing? not me I'm getting in. After a few hours with finger in air, was forced to pull out Franklin, got some nasty comments from those without. Sure enough Mr. Scalper came running within seconds. Yes this kid had his first $100 show and a million dollar experience. How we miss those days

One of my favorite audience tapes. Slightly different source, but nonetheless... Didn't know this show was in the archives. Didn't know the vault was still open to submissions.

Rejoicing.

Subject: good aud...great show
The levels are not too low, the crowd is ENERGIZED and is captured in this great recording. Vocals come through clear and strong as well. Better than most Omni "auds" I have. Plus, spring 1990 was a great tour, with the dead at the best they had been in years...it shows here.
